Care Now Volunteers

Hours: Ad hoc - please contact Tom to find out more
Salary: This is a Trustee role, which is voluntary
Location: Hybrid - Cornwall

Care Now Volunteers is an exciting new charity, less than 6 months old, already making a real difference in recruiting volunteers to support care homes throughout Cornwall.

Following a pilot the charity is engaged with over 50 care homes in all parts of the County. Over 300 volunteers contribute their valuable time in befriending, entertainment, gardening, housekeeping and meal support.  Our volunteers do not carry out any personal care activities.

Over 20% of volunteers have benefitted through their experiences to either engage in gainful employment or on pathways to employment. All volunteers report improvements in their self-worth and wellbeing.

Care Now Volunteers charity has enjoyed support from the NHS locally and has a fundraising strategy including the National Lottery, local businesses and other trusts and funders. We also work in close co-operation with other local charities.

We are particularly seeking trustees who have some experience in the wider health and care sector; in fundraising; finance; in marketing, social media and PR and most of all have a passion to help the embryonic charity develop positively in coming months.

While we would like trustees to be with us for 3 years we are also happy to welcome you for a year if that suits you better.

I look forward to hearing from you by a quick call or email.
